The opioid epidemic has officially manifested itself in the workplace, a recent survey has found.

The survey from Detox.com found that, out of 1,121 people surveyed, nearly 7 in 10 American workers said they have done drugs on the job or while heading to their job.

In addition, the survey found that retail and food/beverage workers were the most likely to do drugs at work and 17 percent of those surveyed said they did opiates on the job, the highest percentage of drugs found.

The workers who were second-most likely to do drugs at work were in the education and healthcare industries. Many of those surveyed said they used drugs due to anxiety, boredom or addiction.
